It has been 27 years since the end of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the history of the conflict, its consequences, and long-term implications for the politics and lives of its citizens has remained a source of interest for scholars across the globe and across disciplines. This scholarship has included works by historians and political scientists seeking to explain the war’s origins with a view to Bosnia’s traditional multi-ethnic character and background. The country has been used as a case study in state- and peace-building, as well as to study the implications of ongoing transitional justice processes. Diaspora communities have formed in North America (especially in St. Louis), Europe, and Australia because of war and displacement, and have themselves become a considerable topic of study spanning the disciplines of anthropology, migration studies, political science, memory studies, conflict and security studies, psychology, and geography.
We are pleased to host a virtual discussion with Dženeta Karabegović (University of Salzburg) and Adna Karamehić-Oates (Fontbonne University), co-editors of a new book that illuminates how Bosnian migrant and diaspora scholars are contributing to the development of Bosnian Studies. They will be joined by Dino Kadich (University of Cambridge), a contributing author to the volume. The discussion will be moderated by Adi Džumhur, CSEEES Associate Director.
